MANILA, Philippines — From Olympic Gold medalist Hidilyn Diaz to 12 women who uplift lives and livelihoods, PeopleAsia’s “Women of Style & Substance” take centerstage in the magazine’s latest double-cover issue.

Leading this year’s list is special awardee Hidilyn Diaz, the country’s first Olympic gold medalist. To honor Hidilyn and her feat, PeopleAsia’s new issue comes with a special gold-stamped solo cover.

On the flip cover are “Women of Style & Substance” 2021 awardees who proved that not even a pandemic can stop them from soaring.

Among them are Justice Undersecretary Emmeline Aglipay Villar, who is on a crusade against online sexual abuse of children; Biñan Rep. Len Alonte Naguiat, who redefines public service with her swift and steady response to the pandemic; and Marikina Rep. Stella Quimbo, who uses her training as an economist to craft timely legislation, such as the Accelerated Recovery and Investments Stimulus for the Economy (ARISE) Bill.

Also on this year’s list is Maginhawa Community Pantry founder Ana Patricia Non, whose breakthrough advocacy model inspired the creation of more than 6,000 other community pantries nationwide.

Also making strides are Mynt-Globe Fintech Innovations president and CEO Martha Sazon, whose GCash offering now serves at least 40 million Filipinos, and Hilton Manila commercial director Joanne Golong-Gomez, who further grew the brand in challenging times for the hotel and hospitality industry.

Well-loved celebrities also add star power to the magazine. They are award-winning actress Judy Ann Santos, who is also a restaurateur and a civic-minded homemaker; and singer Pops Fernandez, who has successfully evolved and reinvented herself during her decades-long reign as the country’s “Concert Queen.”

Businesswomen who pivoted quickly in the time of the economic downturn are also being honored. They are Wildflour president and CEO Ana Lorenzana De Ocampo, whose successful restaurant chain developed a number of sub-brands and delivery services in the time of COVID-19; Casa Bella director Stephanie Coyiuto-Tay, who runs a successful home and furniture business; and beauty entrepreneurs such as Brilliant Skin Essentials president and CEO Glenda Victorio and South Care Cosmetics Mfg. Inc. founder and CEO Maricor Monton Flores, who have made skincare and beauty products available to a wider range of customers.
